Hi Glitter Babes!
The Balm’s Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette has been on my lust list for quite a while so when Rexall was having a BOGO sale, this palette was the first thing I grabbed. I’m so excited to own a palette made up of only matte colours and since it’s by The Balm, I had to see if it would blow me away like the other palettes have.
Price: $32 CAD at Rexall/Pharmaplus
First off, I love how retro and cute The Balm is with their palettes. The palette is super lightweight and small, with an inside mirror, double sided brush and closes with a magnetic fastener to prevent damage.
Matt Smith: Creamy beige
Matt Gallagher: Light pinkish-brown
Matt Ramirez: Dark reddish-brown
Matt McDonald: Dark greyish-blue
Matt Horowitz: Medium blue
Matt Chung: Pale pink
Matt Batali: Dark eggplant
Matt Schilling: Medium teal
Matt Patel: Medium mauve
With matte shadows in palettes, I’m always afraid of a couple shades being a bit too chalky to use but while testing this palette out, I was amazed by how pigmented each colour was and how smooth and easy all of them applied. As you can see in the swatches below, the blues, teal and mauve have a slight sheen too them, which doesn’t exactly make them completely matte colours like the rest of the palette but regardless of finding that out, they happen to be my favourite shades (especially Matt McDonald, Matt Horowitz and Matt Schilling!) to work/play with!
Have you picked up the Meet Matt(e) palette? What do you think of it?!
Hugs, Kisses & Glitter,
